I record, take apart, and reconfigure video taken from a site. The fragmented imagery moves from straight photographic representation to a subjective sense of a particular place to a more abstract, diagrammatic idea of space. The varied sequences of layered images loosely connect from one to another showing an interior in process (both physical and psychological), simultaneously being constructed and disassembled. I am interested in the way memory seizes upon isolated fragments of experience, reconstructing and formulating them into a cohesive mental artifact, yet never truly fixing an accurate picture.
